Heartland Payment Systems (HPY) has been removed from Visa's list of

Heartland data breach have until May 19 to file their fraud claims with
Visa.

This news emerged late last week from a public statement by Visa, as well

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliant Service
Providers list. This list represents the service providers that Visa has

can apply to be relisted once they revalidate PCI DSS compliance and meet
other security stipulations.
